The Race Course for Great Edinburgh Run


The 10 mile route gives runners the perfect sight-seeing tour of Edinburgh and skirts past some of the must-see attractions in Scotland.

Starting and finishing in Holyrood Park runners will see a number of the city's famous landmarks such as Edinburgh Castle, Greyfriars Bobby, Scott Monument and the beautiful Arthur's Seat.



Scotland’s capital city is one of the UK’s most popular tourist hot spots. With every corner of Edinburgh steeped in history and culture it is a must-see destination. Whether you are a keen shopper, arts enthusiast, or sports fan Edinburgh offers a wealth of activities for the family.

Take your pick of things to do in Edinburgh such as visiting the famous Greyfriars Bobby, the National Museum of Scotland, Princes Street Gardens, the Royal Mile or, of course, the dramatic sights of Edinburgh Castle. Perhaps you’d prefer to watch a game of rugby at Murrayfield Stadium or take a walk up Arthur’s Seat for panoramic views across the city, the River Forth and the Pentland Hills.
